A spam filter is a software application that impedes unasked-for emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is extremely important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of safety. In case you continue to receive junk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to a different mailbox where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-rate spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can view them later, so as to ensure that the messages that you need will not get lost.
